Top Chef

Top Chef
9/8c Bravo
In a heatedly divided Washington, D.C., our culinary power players have rocked the vote. Thus far, Season 7 has tasked the chefs to whip up kid fare, a classic picnic, hotel room service and cold entrées, and they also got crabby picking through an Eastern Shore delicacy — the blue crab. Now the focus turns to bite-size fare that one can spear with a toothpick. Later, in the elimination challenge, the culinarians craft a power lunch at an upscale eatery. The council of taste testers includes chef Art Smith; politicos Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.); pundit Joe Scarborough; and journalists Mika Brzezinski and Savannah Guthrie.

MTV, CW Tops GLAAD's Gay-Friendly Programming Survey; CBS Fails Again


MTV has received GLAAD's first "excellent" rating in the organization's annual survey of gay-friendly programming, for its inclusion of LGBT characters or issues.

"From their inception, MTV programs like The Real World and America's Best Dance Crew have offered richly diverse portrayals of gay and transgender people that help Americans better understand and accept our community," said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios.

So You Think You Can Dance

So You Think You Can Dance
8/7c Fox
Referees at the World Cup may be incapable of admitting mistakes, but they could learn something from the SYTYCD judges, who basically came right out and said last Wednesday that they goofed by eliminating Cristina and keeping Melinda. Ouch! But Lauren's near-wardrobe malfunction and Alex's same-sex couch-dancing with Twitch really raised the bar for the performance shows, so it will be interesting to see if the Top 8 can clear it tonight.

Katherine Reutter

Winter Olympics
8/7c NBC
With a win on this track in last year's World Cup, America's Shauna Rohbock has to be considered a favorite in tonight's women's bobsled final. With partner Michelle Rzepka, she's got some momentum, having also won the final World Cup event of this season. Lindsey Vonn races again tonight in what has been her weakest event this season, the giant slalom; but her teammate Julia Mancuso won the gold in this race in 2006. There are two exciting events in short-track: Apolo Ohno skates in the prelims of the wild 500m men's sprint (he led wire-to-wire to win gold in this event in Torino); and the frenetic women's 3000m relay. "I feel like we have a really good shot at the podium in the relays," says U.S. skater Katherine Reutter. "We've become a very deep team."  In freestyle skiing, China has been the dominant force in women's aerials; and in cross-country, the men's 4x10km relay final has traditionally been the sport's most thrilling race.
